Police arrested a 40-year-old resident in Nahariya on suspicion of attempting to sexually assault a 14-year-old girl.
The suspect entered the minor’s house on the pretense that he was distributing religious items. Once inside he kissed the girl and told her he would return later that evening.
The mother documented the suspect returning to the home later that day searching for the girl. The mother immediately called the police following the encounter and he was arrested that evening for the ‘meeting with the minor’. He was also found in possession of contraceptives in preparation for the meeting.
According to the preliminary investigation, it was found that the suspect goes door to door often distributing religious items. He is suspected of having additional victims.
The suspect was brought the Haifa Magistrate’s Court for a request to extend his detention.
